I have been working in respite for 3 years. I currently help with a 3 year old kiddo on the spectrum. I am also a special needs mom myself; my teenage daughter is on the spectrum. I work as an elementary special education teacher so I have lots of experience with disorders and behaviors. I am caring and empathetic, but firm and consistent; boundaries and routines are important. Being a teacher, I am available most of the summer to provide services. My teenager is an elite athlete, so I am not always available every day, but most days. I LOVE caring for kiddos with unique abilities. I strive to ensure they have fun with me and my daughter (she is also very involved with the kiddos), while also helping them with critical social skills. If you are interested in a bit more help, please reach out! 🙂
